Join EditMentor online as they present: The Motivated Cut at LAPPG on Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 5pm PT via Zoom.

Cutting may appear to be the most basic task an editor has to do, but deciding precisely where to place the cut is a specialized skill. All filmmakers focus on intentional and invisible cuts to ensure continuity.
In this session, you’ll review some of the Rules of Continuity using EditMentor, a unique online teaching system.

• Explore how motivation has a role in edit decisions
• Demonstrate how to use visual, audio, and/or dialogue cues to determine edit points
• Recognize the value of the 30 Degree Rule for story continuity

Plus, you will get an inside look at the revolutionary tool that is teaching students the Art of Storytelling. EditMentor features a learn-by-doing approach with challenges and instant feedback.

All attendees will receive a login to EditMentor to try it out after the session.

After years of working in post-production and teaching editing software, Misha built EditStock to make independent films available to students for learning the craft of editing.

Misha’s latest project, EditMentor, completely reimagines how editing education should be taught. Through hands-on, browser based lessons, EditMentor puts storytelling back at the center of video editing education.

Misha supports and promotes visual literacy as the third basic tenet that includes reading and writing. “Visual storytelling has become a must-have skill for the 21st century. My work will support the education and advancement of this vital expertise.”
